Good people must challenge evil despite the consequences. Not all humans can be corrupted; truly tragic and/or devastating experiences can be overcome. At least some evil originates from small missteps that spiral out of control.
Animated, but with graphic violence and frightening visual images throughout. Many characters are shot at point-blank range, bleed, die. Extensive gunfire with an assortment of high-powered weapons. Brutal hand-to-hand combat and some torture. Car chases, crashes, mayhem in the streets. A leading character is shot, permanently paralyzed. Brightly lit, fast-paced scenes in an amusement park are violent and ghoulish, include savage fighting, injuries, and death. Batman, Batgirl, and Commissioner Gordon are in extreme peril in numerous scenes. A sexual predator menaces Batgirl; there's an attempted sexual assault; characters are stripped naked.
In a departure from other Batman stories, this one sexualizes both Batman and Batgirl. The two characters have a sexual encounter on a rooftop: passionate kissing, Batgirl starts to undress, scene ends as intercourse is implied, then it's acknowledged in dialogue later. Batgirl is harassed and stalked by a villain, briefly appears to flirt back. Two violent assaults on leading characters in which both are stripped naked and that nakedness is exploited.
Occasional swearing: "hell," "ass," "bitch," "Jesus," "asshole," "pissed," "good in the sack," "goddammit," "holy Christ."
Another entry in the Warner Bros./DC Comic franchise.
